Regenerative & Alternative Medicine

Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is one of the latest treatments being used to help restore, repair and re-grow damaged tissue in pets. In veterinary medicine, this therapy is primarily used to treat arthritic animals, and for those with tendon and ligament injuries—although indications are that in the future this therapy may be effective for other medical conditions.

Regenerative treatment at Haven Veterinary Clinic involves the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The plasma is then injected into the affected area on the patient. Benefits include:

  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Pain relief and management
  • Regeneration of tissue—recent studies report that more than 80% of dogs with arthritis who are treated with regenerative PRP therapy show improved quality of life.

The process is fairly simple and has few side effects. To learn more about regenerative medicine, check out the video below and then give us a call and we can determine if it’s right for your pet!

Non-THC CBD Oil

The use of cannabidiol (CBD) oil and products to help pets is becoming very mainstream and ongoing studies have so far shown that it can be safe and effective for many conditions and support general health and well-being in animals. 

CBD is a chemical found in marijuana, but doesn’t contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the ingredient that produces a “high”. 

Some conditions that may be improved with the use of CBD products include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Joint disease
  • Stress/Anxiety
  • Epileptic seizures
  • Skin/allergies
